King David's Palace: Revisionism: False History of Israel:A brilliant archaeologist, after years of hard work, has discovered that those who want to rewrite history to suit their political agendas, are wrong. In 1983 when Adam Zertal discovered an enormous sacrificial altar on Mount Eval, he was firstly ignored by the academic world and was then accused of being 'politically motivated' in his discovery. How can the discovery of an ancient artifact be ignored on the basis that its finder may or may not be 'politically motivated'?
Political Correctness Mind Control Rewriting History
If there is one thing I hate it is the PC 'hidden agenda'. PC militants are liars and deceivers who do everything to control the minds and thoughts of the general public, but I saw a new twist on this theme in an article recently forwarded to me, entitled:
The world of archeology is rocked by evidence of King David's palace unearthed in Jerusalem by Rachel Ginsberg
The topic is King David's Palace in Jerusalem. The article warns us that:
[For] academics and intellectuals, King David and his united kingdom of Judah and Israel,....is simply a piece of fiction [because they claim]
The traditional [Biblical] account was resurrected by the Zionists to justify dispossessing Palestinian Arabs.
However, a brilliant archaeologist, after years of hard work, has discovered that those who want to rewrite history to suit their political agendas, are wrong.
Mazar's latest excavation in the City of David, in the southern shadow of the Temple Mount, has shaken up the archaeological world.
[Originally] she couldn't find any financial backers
Because the search would just be too politically complicated.
The article points out that:
Adam Zertal in 1983 discovered an enormous sacrificial altar on Mount Eval, but when not being ignored by the academic world was accused of being 'politically motivated'. How can the discovery of an ancient artifact be ignored on the basis that its finder may or may not be 'politically motivated'?
As one person is quoted as saying: 'It's bad for business to find things from the Bible these days.
No only is it bad for business, and politically inconvenient, to discover that the Biblical records are 'factual historical records', but they are a threat to the Palestinian claims to Jerusalem. As the article points out:
Mazar has for the past six years tried to alert the world to the vandalism being perpetrated by the Muslim Waqf, who have their own agenda of destroying remnants of proof of Jewish sovereignty in Jerusalem, and who consistently deny that there ever was a First or Second Temple.
The greatest breech was discovered in 1999, when the Waqf bulldozed and then paved over close to 6,000 square meters of the ancient Temple Mount surface.
When any organisation espousing any 'truth', needs to lie, cover up the truth, or destroy evidence in order to validate their position, that organisation is diabolic, and those who support such organisations, are fools at best, or low lifes at worst. Many PC militants are low lifes in my opinion.
Take the PC claim that Israel first belonged to the Palestinians (that is to say the Philistines). Such a claim is contrary to known history, but as is demonstrated in all totalitarian states, history is whatever the dictators say it is.
The Philistines did not 'settle' in Palestine until sometime after the reign of Rehoboam, son of Solomon. Prior to that time and for many centuries previously, they were mercenaries of the Egyptians. The Philistines hail from the Aegean Islands, and consisted of many different groups, and it is thought that they got their name from the group called the 'Peleset'.
Now for all those deluded into thinking that Israel 3000 years ago destroyed the Philistines and took away their land, kindly pay attention. The peoples (many groups) displaced by the Israelites, were those people given the general name 'Canaanites'. The Philistines and Canaanites were two different groups, and the Philistines, under Egyptian directives, also dispossessed Canaanites.
The Philistines as a people however, eventually disappear from the pages of history and into the ages of times past. The Palestinians today, are not the descendants of Philistines, either by parentage or religion. The Philistines worshiped idols and the fire God Molech, unto whom the Philistines sacrificed their children so that the gods would bless them. Hm! Come to think of it. This description sure fits the picture of Palestine today.
An ancient seal bearing an archaic Hebrew inscription dating back to the 8th century BCE has been uncovered in an archeological excavation in Jerusalem's City of David, the Israel Antiquities Authority announced Thursday. The find reveals that by 2,700 years ago, clerks and merchants had already begun to add their names to the seals instead of the symbols that were used in earlier centuries.
Academics have for a long time been Shifting Previous Historical Perspectives, trying to establish themselves in one way or another. For a variety of reasons they would rather not give credit where it is due; not admit that which they know to be true; not wanting to delve too deeply into something that might show them up for what they are.
The worst of the bunch however, are those who prefer to rewrite history to suit their own political ideologies. In that endeavour, it makes no 'nevermind' whether it is Islamic rewriting of history, or the secularist anti-God, anti-Judeo/Christian who does the writing. The end result is the same: We are deceived about our own history, and our faith is undermined.
Fortunately for us, someone comes along now and then and proves these liars wrong. But instead of always waiting for the 'hard evidence' to turn up and PROVE them wrong, maybe we should be asking them to provide the hard evidence that proves them right.
But PC, a lip-service balm for conscience-stricken liberals, is an irresistible palliative; it requires no moral courage, play of imagination, or social integrity—only the strict observance of an arbitrary set of semantic rules, whimsical semantic proscriptions, promulgated in exhaustive lists of forbidden words and ideas.
Re: Fort Hood Massacre I invite readers to think about the educators of our "politically correct" or non-judgmental media, because the core of the problem consists not in cowardly or obfuscating journalists but rather the universities that educated them.
We boast of these universities, even though they produce so many moral idiots. I mean men and women stultified by the academic doctrine of moral or cultural relativism. Because it is this doctrine that prompts "politically correct" fools to hire Muslims to serve on US military bases.
The social engineering of society, to accommodate 'ideological agendas' which sound so great, usually fall victim to 'The Law of Unintended Consequences'.
But when the 'rights' of ideologues, social engineers and political activists start impinging on our personal and traditional identity; which is to say, 'our national culture', then it is time to sit back and say 'enough!
We really do need to pay more attention to how our own minds operate, and how we are both consciously and subconsciously effected by Media Propaganda.
It's very easy to 'take sides' in an issue, and it is very easy to be persuaded of a cause, but at the end of the day, unless it is our specific purpose to blind ourselves to the truth, it is encumbent upon us to do our best to look at every situation from as many persepectives as possible...to make sure that we are not 'obsessive and compulsive' in our political and social judgements.
Is it possible that we and our kids are living in a state of 'stupor', controlled by external forces that seek to mould us to their wills? Does the media and do the Universities engineer what we think? Do they try to cast a spell over our minds and our thoughts?
Humankind (I'm afraid to write 'mankind') loves and admires charasmatic speakers and leaders, and naturally we expect students to 'look up to' their teachers. What happens when those leaders and teachers are not worthy of honour, or are teaching that which is contrary to our own (family/ social/ cultural or traditional) culture?
Political Correctness is ultimately a game where the one who is speaking is free to speak, and anyone who speaks against him/her is in the wrong, unless of course what you are saying, has the support of the majority of the 'socio-political' elites. In truth, Free Speech is a Myth
The Premise: Between the 5th and 3rd centuries BCE (but continuing down to at least 104 BCE), Sectarian redactors transcribed the legitimate 'solar year' chronological records of Israel and Judah, into an artificial form, with listed years as each comprised of 12 months of 4 weeks of 7 days, or 336 days per year, thus creating a 13th artificial year where 12 solar years existed.
When the Synchronous Chronological Data provided in the Books of Kings and Chronicles for the Divided Kingdom Period are measured in years of 336 days, the synchronisms actually align. [Refer to Appendix Five to see how it synchronises the Divided Kingdom Period]

About the KingsCalendar Publisher
R.P.BenDedek is the owner and Editor of KingsCalendar.com which was originally set up to publicize his research results into the Chronology of Ancient Israel. Those results were published under the title: 'The King's Calendar: The Secret of Qumran'.
Whilst there have been many attempts to solve the chronological riddle of the Bible's synchronisms of reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah and their synchronism with other Ancient Near Eastern Nations, no other research is based on a simple mathematical formula which could, if it is incorrect, be disproved easily. To date, no one has been able to dismiss the mathematical results of this research.
Free to air Academic articles set forth Apologetics for and results of his discovery of an "artificial chronological scheme" running through the Bible, Josephus, the Damascus Documents of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and Seder Olam Rabbah.
